question

Getting static and interference noise. When I unplug USB it stops?
Asked by: Dani
A comprehensive test of every device in your setup would need to be done to determine where the interference noise and static is coming from. You could be getting RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) through the computer or computer monitor. If the noise is a ground loop, you may try the EBTECH HUMX which filters out unwanted voltage and current in the ground line that cause ground loop hum, while simultaneously maintaining a solid, safe ground.

question

Is it possible to use this product as an external sound card? Specifically, I'd like to use it to connect it to my computer through USB and use it to get sound from my computer to my studio monitors. Is this possible?
Asked by: Anonymous
You can use it as an external sound card, but you need a lot of gain reinforcement to get decent output levels. I had to get an active DI box to get the output signal up to pro levels. That set me back another $40. The ART USB Dual Pre has the same issue. ART just doesn't like making its USB interfaces too loud, it seems.ART markets the USB Mix as if it could be used as a standalone mixer, like Behringer's Xenyx 302USB. But, IMO, that isn't true. the 302USB is a LOT louder than the ART unit. It isn't even contest. It's worth mentioning, I think, that ART's ASIO driver works on both mixers.
